Washington (CNN) - Two senior Democratic sources tell CNN Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has discussed with Colorado Senator Michael Bennet the possibility of taking over the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
The two talked this week, the sources said, but there was no resolution to the conversation.
"The ask has been made, and Michael has been thinking about it," said one of the Democratic sources.
These sources say it's unlikely Bennet will take the job. He just won a brutal battle to keep is Senate seat.
The DSCC is in charge of getting Democratic Senate candidates elected, and Democrats will have to defend 23 incumbent Senate seats in the 2012 election cycle, a daunting task.
